Maybe Peyton Manning just really likes Budweiser

New, comments

Budweiser didn't pay Peyton for his post-game proclamations.

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

Twice after Super Bowl 50 (oh by the way, Broncos Country, WE'RE SUPER BOWL CHAMPIONS AAAAAAAHHHHHHH), Peyton Manning told his CBS interviewer that he was going to drink a lot of Budweiser.

You all probably thought the same thing I did: "How much did Budweiser pay Manning to say that, anyway?"

Turns out, on the record - nada.

It's okay though. Manning made $2 million Sunday night just playing football. He'll be fine.

And I'm sure Budweiser will throw a few beers his way anyway.

Cheers, Broncos Country!

Update Feb 8th 9:02 a.m. MT

It has come to our attention that maybe Peyton likes Budweiser a bit because he owns a few Anheiser-Busch distributors (via Deadspin).

That's mildly annoying, but for Broncos fans, the sight of Manning clad in Super Bowl champions gear offsets any conscious realization that his post-game Super Bowl speech was a money-grab.
